Sacajawea Chapter NSDAR continues its decades of service to Olympia and the South Puget Sound area. Members give generously of their time and talents in service to the American Lake Veterans Hospital, Shelton High School Junior ROTC Awards, DAR Good Citizens awards to local area high school seniors, historic preservation and scholarship, conservation work, support of DAR schools, patriotic observances on special days, and many other activities.
Sacajawea Chapter NSDAR members present a special Constitution Week Flag to Governor Christine Gregoire, Olympia, Washington, October 17, 2012.
Constitution Week activities included a display and "signing" at a local library.
Members were on hand to help dedicate one of the four new Lewis and Clark Trail markers sponsored by the Washington State Society. This one is at Fort Canby State Park, at the mouth of the Columbia River.
February brings the annual commemoration of George Washington's birthday. We join many of the other western Washington DAR chapters, to lay wreaths at the base of the statue of George Washington on the University of Washington campus. The statue was donated to the University by local DAR chapters.
The annual massing of the colors at Fort Lewis. What an inspiration to see all those flags! We proudly represent our chapter, and carry our flags into the assembly.
Sacajawea chapter members attend State Conferences and pause for a group memory.
